Glappit to Launch Discussion Festival in Chicago’s Wicker Park Neighborhood

Cultural Enthusiasts to Experience Glappitnova

Emerging social marketplace startup, Glappit will launch its first ever discussion festival in the trendy Wicker Park neighborhood on February 23rd. Glappitnova will be held in multiple venues along the ever popular Milwaukee Avenue.
The festival hopes to give cultural enthusiasts the opportunity to drop into their favorite shops or bars and hear short stories from numerous speakers from a variety of industries – all while experiencing the vibrant culture of Wicker Park.

“We’re leaving it up to the attendees to customize this live experience; we want the stories of our speakers to spark discussion. It’s really their prerogative, our intention is for people to learn or showcase a unique skill. We’re hoping for greater connectivity,” says Nick Brown, Founder of Glappit.

The goal of the Glappit brand and the Glappitnova festival is uniquely focused on storytelling, interactive experiences, and information sharing all while having a good time doing it. The discussion festival will bring startups, influencers, creatives, seekers and doers together in hopes of sparking that interactive connection.

“Despite Chicago being an emerging hub for culture, technology, and business, we believe those hubs aren’t necessarily interconnected. That’s why Glappitnova provides a great opportunity to bring people, talents and culture together because everyone has a little something to share,” says Mike Webb, Co-Founder of Glappit.

The discussion leader’s time-slots will be staggered to allow attendees the opportunity to check out as many of the great speakers and venues that Milwaukee Avenue offers. The Glappit crew believes participants who experience Glappitnova will learn something uniquely different, recognize someone from TV, put a face to an individual they read about, or even hung out with but didn’t know how truly awesome they are. That is what Glappit hopes to accomplish in their latest effort.

“We’re starting small but we have great exceptions of Glappitnova growing into something similar to South by Southwest (SXSW) mixed with a Speakers’ Corner and held in the great city of Chicago. We will add our unique flavor to it because this is, of course coming from the guy with a company named, Glappit,” says Brown.

Stop. dry winter. miserable mess?

I swear by these products. They save my skin and hair from the damage caused by severe cold weather.

Several years ago, I always liberally applied baby oil on my skin after showering and then sealed it in with a layer of lotion. Now that I’ve grown older and wiser, #JahobaOil seals in the moisture even deeper!

Then, I top it off with a little bit of #CocoaButter. The result, silky smooth skin!

#JahobaOil is also my go to quick fix when I’m wearing my hair curly. Day old and/or dried bed head curls can quickly be spruced up with a spritz of water and a little #JahobaOil.

I suffer from severe cracked lips in the winter. And all of “the best” chap sticks (I.e. the ones that taste good, the ones that don’t, the ones that burn, and the others that soothe) only make it worse. The only thing that cures my cup-warmers is the trusty #Aquaphor! If used before bedtime, your lips will feel like new the next day!

Last but not least, my dearest #MoroccanOil. My life was not complete before you. Every time you’re with me is just as good as the last. Apply just a little on damp hair, blow-dried hair, styled hair and more and witness hair vitality being restored!
